      LilHoover's Sugar Loaf Sanke Grow Out

      I didn't post a picture right away because the one picture I took was terrible. It was just not a priority to take pictures. The fish were tired from their trip and I didn't take the time to photograph them carefully. Now one month later I got a fairly decent shot.

      On arrival (terrible picture!)


      One month later (today). S/he's grown over an inch and has plumped up quite a bit. There is some underlying sumi behind her head in the white area and there is some underlying sumi on her head, which the photo does not show very well.



      I Because of the red head which really shows up from quite a distance, I called him/her 'Rita Hayworth'. S/he has a very bold personality.

      It took me nearly 2 hours to get Rita into the bucket. I stood by the side of the QT with the net in the water resting on the bottom and then I just waited and waited for him/her to finally swim over it. I was so paranoid about hurting her I was willing to wait. I lifted the net slightly so she couldn't swim away and guided her gently into the bucket. No struggle at all, net didn't touch her at all. It was a looooooong wait though!

      Not quite five months later...



      Still hard to catch, though.

      Some sumi has come up but it's all on the other side of the koi. It was overcast so the color didn't come out brightly in the photo.

      Looks great, though.
